“Hath He Commanded Any”

Brant Gardner

The structure of this argument is the same as the previous verse. A negative statement is contrasted with the positive phrase to follow. Nephi asks if Christ would expel any from a house of worship? He emphatically declares that Christ would not. Thematically, Nephi is again contrasting an exclusive God with an inclusive God.
